    We spent 2 months here for containment. Very good sandy bottom. Pay attention to the speed because a lot of slightly shy turtles come to breathe. Nature reserve very rich in animals and birds, a jewel to be respected. Walk on the island possible in shoes (many cacti). A haven of peace far from any civilization.

    Nous avons passé 2 mois ici pour le confinement. Très bon fond de sable. Attention à la vitesse car beaucoup de tortues peu farouches viennent respirer. Réserve naturelle très riche en animaux et oiseaux, un écrin à respecter. Balade sur l'île possible en chaussures (nombreux cactus). Un havre de paix loin de toute civilisation.

    Very nice stage: buoys available (in variable number!) And which are part of the right of anchorage of Saint Barth. Turtles present in number. Walk on the nice island to do.

    Très belle étape: bouées disponibles (en nombre variable!) et qui font partie du droit de mouillage de Saint Barth. Tortues présentes en nombre. Promenade sur l’île sympa à faire.

    A magic spot. A few free moorings which was nice, but good sand holding if not. Great snorkeling, a wild walk up the deserted island and amazing corals and stones washed up on the beach. Loved it.
